Ever met a woman who doesn’t own a dress in her closet? We bet not. This outfit might differ in shape and size according to the likes of the person wearing it. But somehow, a dress finds its way in every closet season after season. While there are plenty of options to choose from in dresses, our quest for keeping up with trends sometimes makes us forget to dress for our body type. No, we’re not trying to discourage you… but not all styles are timeless or suit everyone. However stepping in to do our job, we have a solution to this. Certain styles stand against the notion of body type dressing and work well for any women wearing it. Read along as we give you three dress styles that flatter every body type.
The Shift Dress
Getting down to basics, a shift dress is one which falls from the shoulder and generally ends at the knees. A little less fitted around the waist and the hips, this piece is versatile and is perfect for most body types. Think of a petite figure or even an athletic one, a shift dress works for both. Take a style cue from Deepika Padukone with her most recent Cannes Balenciaga dress.
The Wrap Dress
This semi-fitted style saw a return this runway season with many A-list celebrities adopting this belted trend. And we’ve put this style in here because of its all-embracing nature. If you’re on the curvy side, a wrap dress helps accentuate your waistline. Moreover, a rectangular body type can also adopt this style as it helps in giving a more fitted appeal.
Fit And Flare
Fitted on the top and flared at the bottom, this dress style is the last in line but great for every woman. We have seen it worked as both a midi and a mini and can vouch every bit for this functional dress. Giving a fitted appeal from the top, the contrasting flares add to give it a more fuller look. Take lessons from Huma Qureshi or Alessandria Ambrosio as they show how to ace the fit and flare style looking effortless as ever.
